Here we are again at the precipice of crafting season.
There are so many awesome gifts to make, and (suddenly) there's not so much
time. For this issue, Vickie designed a comfy cowl that looks lush but takes
less time than you'd think. Crocheted in Patons Uplands-a chunky, tone-on-tone
roving yarn-with a size K hook, the Cowler was created with a long gift list in
mind. You can make a Cowler in an evening or two-and the buttons make it
customizable, so you won't get bored making multiples!
